  DRY EYE IS A DISEASE!
 Proper diagnosis is the first step toward relief.
 
Dry eye is one of the most under-diagnosed ocular diseases, and yet it is the most common reason why patients go see their eye care professional. 86% of dry eye patients are affected by Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD).

Dry eye is a multifactorial disease of the tears and ocular surface that results in symptoms of discomfort, visual disturbance, and tear film instability with potential damage to the ocular surface. It is accompanied by increased osmolarity of the tear film and inflammation of the ocular surface.

Osmolarity
In fact, dry eye disease occurs when your eyes do not produce enough tears or produce poor quality tears. That's why it's essential you get your tears analyzed by your eye doctor. Only an eye doctor can properly diagnose your problem and treat it appropriately.

We will take a sample of tears from each eye and use a device to measure osmolarity (the saltiness of your tears). As osmolarity in your tears increase ocular surface cells become damaged. Your doctor will need an amount of tear fluid no larger than the period at the end of this sentence.
 
LipiFlow  LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation System
LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation System is a cleared medical device for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) shown to improve gland function.

The LipiFlow® Thermal Pulsation System consists of a Console and a single-use sterile device, known as the Activator, and has a drug-free mechanism of action.

We use the LipiFlow System to treat MGD patients in-office with confidence and efficiency. The Lipiflow System represents more than 10 years of dedicated research and is protected by more than 30 patents

A phased pressure profile with adaptive force equalization and proximal-to-distal peristaltic motion evacuates gland contents as the inner lid is gently heated.
LipiFlow's mechanism of action provides a drug-free approach!
How The LIPIFLOW System Works
  The procedure centers around the breakthrough Vector Thermal Pulse Technologyâ„¢ (VTP) 
  After an initial anesthetic drop, no drugs are required for the procedure
  The LipiFlow system safely delivers therapeutic energies to the meibomian glands
  As a result, the obstructed meibum is liquefied and pushed up and out of the gland orifices
  Contoured design vaults the cornea and protects the delicate structures of your eye
  Heat and pressure are regulated with redundant sensors
 

Vectored

A vaulted design protects the cornea while multi-point sensors monitor and regulate heat and pressure throughout the treatment. This maximizes results and minimizes discomfort. Along with force equalization, the eye is protected from heat and pressure while a nominal therapeutic temperature of 42.5 degrees Celsius is applied directly to the inner eyelid where the glands are located, while protecting the eyelid or delicate structures of the globe.


Thermal

Proprietary heating technology ensures precise temperature regulation with continuous feedback and consistent heat application to the meibomian glands. The insulated and vaulted design of the Activator protects the cornea from unsafe temperatures.


Pulse

Intelligent pressure feedback loop sends pulsed sequences to expel blockages and stagnant material from the gland. The custom pressure sequence maximizes gland clearing while device design protects the eye from unnecessary intraocular pressure.
